Firefox for Organizations: best practice to deploy custom config without AD/GPO

Dear community,

we are an international Non-for profit organization with mostly small offices of about 2-10 staff on 3 continents. The majority of those offices does not have IT staff/knowledge, and infrastructure is often sketchy. We use mostly Windows, but have some offices with Linux. We currently use local users, and after an initial configuration of e.g. Firefox/Thunderbird, we don't have any way to intervene automatically.

So we are looking for an efficient way to control software configurations after deployment without the need for manual intervention. The scope would initially not be a lot, mostly installing/uninstalling addons. E.g. if a malicious addon is found, we want to have a way to uninstall it on all devices. Right now, we have to ask all staff to do this, and evidently this doesn't work out all the time.

Firefox and Thunderbird are 2 key programs installed on all devices, although evidently we use other software as well. I think that with TB78 the policies.json implementation might not be yet finished completely, but for now, Firefox would be more critical (also some staff tend to install addons we do not want on the device).

As far as I know, when it comes ways how to centrally manage Firefox/Thunderbird without a domain controller/GPO, there are some options:

1) Azure AD: Identity management, and maybe also ways to configure Thunderbird/Firefox (although Azure AD does not seem to have GPO, but maybe scripts could be executed at the endpoint?). Won't work for Linux I guess. Also Azure could be based in a US datacenter, and as an European NGO we have much less data protection for US-based data.

2) third party management tool (e.g. like Teamviewer remote management, or chocolately) which allows remote execution of scripts. We could update the policies.json file in the firefox profile via a chocolately/Teamviewer script to uninstall/install addons, etc. Not sure if chocolately works on Linux.

3) GPOs with Domain Controller after all via a pre-auth VPN. Won't work for Linux I guess, but maybe script to deploy policies.json. Also there would be yet another thing to potentially fail (VPN connection), and we would need 2 different deployment methods (GPO for Windows, scripts for Linux).

4) write an Firefox/Thunderbird addon which simply downloads a policies.json file from a central location, and places it in the users FF/TB profile folder. upon restart of FF/TB it should deploy the changes based on the new policies.json file. A bit cumbersome, and doesn't cover other software.

5) a simple bat/sh script which is executed upon start.

To me, it seems a third party tool (teamviewer, chocolately) seems the best option, as it could cover FF/TB, but also other software which is installed.

Before we proceed I would like to know of experiences, and best practices: could anybody provide some information how this was achieved?

kind regards,

To whom who can help,

I am attempting to hard code the homepage for Mozilla Firefox so that it opens only a specific page when Mozilla is started. I am aware with how to achieve this by going into the Mozilla settings in the browser, however id like to make this change on a deep configuration level so that it cannot be changed by end users.

I have achieved success with doing it on Google Chrome using a "master preferences" file which was imported into Google Chrome's program files folder and I would like to know if anyone can help me achieve the same with Mozilla. Our end goal is to put this working solution on an image and distribute new computers with pre configured Mozilla settings unchangeable by the end user.

Also, just as background, I have attempted to google the solution or see if there were any configuration files out there I could alter to my liking but I haven't been able to find any.

Thanks in advance for any help.

We have Firefox deployed to hundreds of workstations in a domain environment. We would like to control local site data storage, such as setting the amount of local site data storage can be used, which sites can store local data, or just have Firefox delete site data when closed.

We use Firefox .cfg file to set different options, such as this: // Set cache size limit clearPref("browser.cache.disk.capacity") lockPref("browser.cache.disk.capacity", 10240);

But we cannot find an option to control site data. Is there any configuration for controlling local site data that we can deploy to all users/installations?

Thanks!

Hello Everyone,

Im implementing DOD compliant settings to Mozilla for our enviroment. I am currently in the testing phase - making sure its all set before deployment, Heres where the fun begins.

Ive done the usual - Place the mozilla.cfg in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox Place the autoconfig.js in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref

and have set the lockPref accordingly for each finding. The issue is that some are being set correctly while others arent being changed at all and most changes arent locked. I have edited the config file to not include the comments (except the top one of course) and changed the \n\r and \r\n to be only \n for the entire file so formatting should not be the issue. I have also changed all commas to match the ones settings that work (no luck) - “” rather than ""

These are working - but doesnt have the lock image

lockPref(“security.default_personal_cert”, “Ask Every Time”; lockPref(“signon.rememberSignons”, false); lockPref(“toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled”, false); lockPref(“browser.search.update”, false); lockPref(“browser.contentblocking.category”, strict); lockPref(“privacy.trackingprotection.cryptomining.enabled”, true); lockPref(“security.tls.version.max”, 4); lockPref(“dom.disable_window_flip”, true); lockPref(“network.protocol-handler.external.shell”, false);


These have Lock image and cannot be changed -working as it should

lockPref(“toolkit.telemetry.enabled”, false);



These are not working:

lockPref(“extensions.update.enabled”, false); lockPref(“dom.event.contextmenu.enabled”, false); lockPref(“extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled”, false); lockPref(“datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled”, false); lockPref(“security.ssl3.rsa_des_ede3_sha”, false); lockPref(“security.enterprise_roots.enabled”, true); lockPref(“security.tls.version.min”, 2); lockPref(“browser.formfill.enable”, false) lockPref(“signon.autofillForms”, false); lockPref(“dom.disable_window_move_resize”, true); lockPref(“devtools.policy.disabled”, true);

These dont even show up in firefox:

lockPref(“xpinstall.enabled”, false); lockPref(“plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types”, PDF, FDF, XFDF, LSL, LSO, LSS, IQY, RQY, XLK, XLS, XLT, POT, PPS, PPT, DOS, DOT, WKS, BAT, PS, EPS, WCH, WCM, WB1, WB3, RTF, DOC, MDB, MDE, WBK, WB1, WCH, WCM, AD, ADP); lockPref(“dom.disable_window_open_feature.status”, true); lockPref(“browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.enabled”, false)

We currently have a setup where we're installing Firefox ESR 68.10.0 using a .CFG and .JS file for custom configurations. Everything has been working great, but now we have a need to update to the latest version of Firefox ESR due to recently-announced security vulnerabilities. I am testing the upgrade to 78.7.0 using the same .CFG and .JS files, and I get the error "Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your system administrator." at startup. I tried doing a complete uninstall of the old version and install of the new one, keeping the same config files, but the same error comes up. The support documentation for ESR 78.7.0 makes no indication that these configuration files are to be used, instead mentioning that Group Policies should be used for configuration in a Windows environment. But we have various user groups that require specialized configurations, and using the configuration files has worked best for us. Is there any way to keep using the configuration files? If so, what changes would I need to make to the formatting of the files to get them working? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Good morning all

We are trying to put Firefox (already installed) as the default internet browser (currently IE 11) on our fleet of machines under Windows 7.

I found a Microsoft solution which consists of modifying two values ​​in the registry:

HKCU \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell \ Associations \ UrlAssociations \ http (and https) at a minimum.

Concretely, the web shortcuts open well with Firefox, however when we go to menu, Firefox options, it is not considered as the default browser. (unhappy smiley: D)

And I don't want users to click on it themselves)

My question is the following, is there an easy way to change it to the default browser by GPO firefox? (which reproduces the click on this button)

Or a list of things to do in the registry to reproduce clicking on the button to set Firefox by default in the menu, options.

I did a regshot before and after clicking on this button, and compared, but it seems quite tedious to me (Keys added: 125, Values ​​added: 113, and some modified values)

Thank you in advance to all

Some years ago I pointed my Firefox cache drive to H:\Firefox. When I updated to 68esr I set the value in the GPO to the same folder. about:config shows the preference as locked.

Recently I decided to move the cache folder to the same drive as the profile folder. So I edited the group policy to point to F:\users\Tanya\Firefox. Updated the group policy and opened firefox. It continued to use H:\Firefox.

So set the policy to not configured and about:config showed h:\firefox. So as a test I set the group policy to iamcountessconsuelabananahammock (Not even a valid path name). No complaints, but firefox continued to write to h:\firefox.

So it seems the only purpose of the group policy is to lock the value, and the content of the GPO is not relevant at all. Is this by design

Our ERP Systems is using .jnlp files and I want to push out to all our desktops that .jnlp files will launch automatically. I am setting up Autoconfig from a centralized point, but I do not see the option to push down settings from the handlers.json file. What is the best way to push the customization that gets created in the handlers.json file down to the clients?

I am trying to package Firefox, with the browsers auto update disabled (updates are handled by the package manager, not the browser; having Firefox prompt at the user may cause confusion). However, I haven't been able to Firefox's nagging with recent (77+) versions.

I have tried writing a policies.json file seems to have no effect. In fact, Firefox didn't even look in system directories like /etc and /lib64/firefox. Is this an Enterprise Firefox feature? Is it even possible to share a single installation of Firefox between users (having their personal prefs in their home directories, ofcourse).

Thanks in advance!
